As COVID-19 takes over televisions and dominates social media, a lot of terrifying news is currently being shared. Tuning is difficult.
There are many reliable sources of information, including the CDC and WHO. But we want Senior Planet to be a place where you can find some peace from the 24-hour news cycle, from fear or from the monotony of staying at home. We're launching a new "stuck-at-home" series that will guide you to online connectivity, entertainment, learning and essential services opportunities, and launch new daily "Lunch, Learn, and Zoom" series that bring people together via video chat. Our curriculum team is busy bringing Senior Planet courses, Explore Tech lectures and workshops online. Life looks different, but it doesn't have to be without joy.
This is a community of smart, generous, envelope-driving people. As you read this, you are already in a great position to take advantage of everything you have learned in Senior Planet courses or events to continue learning and connecting with others. Let's make the most of what we have and see how far we can go what is technologically possible to make our community even stronger.
So we want to know: what do you want to talk about? What makes the internet less stressful? What would help you feel closer to other Senior Planet members? Do you want to trade TV recommendations? Recipes? Meditation tips? YouTube clips? Leave a comment below and we'll do our best to bring your ideas to life. Even if we are physically distant, let's stay connected.
